Groups rally against child abuse

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Community leaders and advocates rallied against child abuse at Louisville Slugger Field.

The rally took place Thursday to kick off Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Kosair Charities partnered with nearly a dozen agencies to work to eliminate child abuse deaths in Kentucky and Indiana over the next ten years.

While child abuse deaths in the area have dropped over the past several years Jerry Ward, with Kosair Charities, said a lot of work still needs to be done.

The campaign will include improved services and community education about child abuse.
